Understanding A Case Through The Child Welfare System

September 13, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Understanding a Case Through the Child Welfare System will provide foster and adoptive parents knowledge on how a case progresses through the child welfare system. Each case may include removal, placement options, court, case plans, meetings, and permanency goals.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how a case is processed through the Child Welfare System and terminology related to a child’s case and people involved.
  • Describe potential outcomes including placement and permanency goals and how to support the child’s needs and help them understand the process of foster care and adoption as they approach these outcomes.

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.
